Rachel is a brilliant recruiter – professional, thorough and consistently going the extra mile. I have been particularly impressed by her not swamping me with CVs but only forwarding those of people who were likely to be a good fit. Some of the skills required for specific roles can be hard to come by but Rachel continues to proactively hunt for suitable candidates. As a Senior Consultant, I believe that Rachel is excellent at managing a team and ensuring that the most suitable consultants are tasked with finding the best candidates for each role.
As the Managing Director of Westgate Healthcare, I have been working with Rachel at Compass Associates for many years. Rather than being passed around different people who don’t know me or our company, I have been able to build a relationship with Rachel and I always know I can get hold of her. She knows what I am looking for and takes the time to understand this so that she can deliver the best results and send me high quality candidates rather than just any old person, which is what most other recruiters do. For Rachel it is quality over quanity which is why I like working with her. She gets me results and doesn’t waste my time. There are only a couple of recruiters I will ever work with on senior posts and Rachel is one of them. She has a great knowledge of the care sector and the candidates in the market place, she adds value, she is friendly and she will go the extra mile for the right candidate. She is also focussed on ensuring that the role is right for the candidate as well as the candidate being right for the employer, which helps ensure that you attract people who want to work with you and will stay with you. I would highly recommend Rachel Kraan and Compass Associates as a recruiter of choice.
Rachel has always been great to work on vacancies with as she will take the time to fully understand our exact requirements and find out the type of person we are looking to recruit. She always keeps me up to date at each stage of the recruitment process, including follow up calls after the candidate has started to ensure we are happy.
I always know that even if we don’t fill a role through Rachel I am given 100% by her and I couldn’t ask for a more attentive service.
Rachel was always available to answer any queries when she wasn’t on duty she made sure there was someone else available to contact me on her behalf.
